IMO Ecchi has always been one of the strong points manga has over anime.
-Censorship is considerably less confrontational. Also generally no need to contort around being broadcast friendly.
and
-Plots feel less forced in manga since it is ~5 mins or so every month/week/whatever rather than 20 mins a weeks. A storyless manga is much more bearable than a storyless anime. Look at DxD this season, you can tell where manga chapters start and finish.

looking for a manga.
--

what I'm looking for //


cute shoujo manga ><. that or a very suspenseful manga that leaves me hanging for more at the end of the chapter. I would definitely like nice art but if it's a really good plot then art doesn't really matter.

mangas along the lines of //

Horimiya , Akatsuki no Yona , Shokugeki no Soma , Aoharu x Kikanju , Hadi Girl , Last Game , Nisekoi , Kimi ni Todoke , Mairunovich , and so on :)

-- thanks in advance

Try Skip Beat and Chihayafuru. Although admittedly I'm not much of a manga fan.
Their anime adaptions are excellent too.

I'm usually not at all excited about Live-action stuff, But I am interested in seeing the Live-action Chihayafuru movie

Hey :D

I'm kinda new here, but i had to answer this :P

I can really recommend you many Mangas, but these are my favorites (excluding your examples) :

  • -Gakuen Alice
    -Ao Haru ride
    -Akuma to love song
    -Hirunaka no Ryuusei <3
    -Tonari no Atashi
    -Taiyou ne le
    -Ookami Shoujo to kuro ouji <3
    -Kamisama Hajimemashita
    -Kyou no Kira Kun
    -L-DK <3
    -Kyou Koi Wa Hajimemasu
    -Heroine
    -Ojousama wa Oyomesama
    -Sugar Soldier
    -Boku no Hatsukoi o Kimi ni Sasagu



And also there is soredemo sekai wa utsukushii, but atm I only watched the Anime and i loved it, and I think the Manga is just as good as the Anime!!


I enjoyed all of them, and in my opinion most of them got a great art :3 (because mostly i can't stand childish art types, it was difficult at the beginning with Gakuen Alice but the story gets so good and i oversaw that.)

I hope I could help you a bit :)

I'm skeptic about that... The thing that makes fictional mediums like manga or anime that much better in this type of show is how they handle the rather simple movements of for example swinging your arm in various epic strokes and poses without looking bad. Take Death Note as a good example. The unforgetable scenes of Light writing franatically in his book look so much better when the director had unlimited ways of portraying it compared to the live action. It takes away a lot from shows like chihayafuru (one of my favorites btw) where the only intense moments except for certain "romance" scenes are the gameplay themselves

It works for action shows but I have my doubts about any type of live action. Only good ones I've seen are like cpt harlock or kenshin, whom had probably a way bigger budget. Or tbh, space brothers movie was pretty good, with a relatively low budget it seemed, but it was a completely different show and cool actors.
posted
I never said Live-action Chihayafuru will be better or anything. It's certainly more doable than other series'. Live action Deathnote was pretty solid the series isn't about how Light writes names in a book. The issue of movement only comes into play when rotoscoping.
posted
Nor did I claim you did. i was not attacking you in any way I just expressed my doubts of the live action execution. i didn't say DN was about that either... please pay attention. I took it as an example of how simple movements are in anime & manga versus live action, and the impact loss when adapting fiction to nonfiction in that regard. Things like that will matter more in shows like chihayafuru, where they are the main fast paced parts of it. This is the reason I'm skeptical about adapting something like chihayafuru.
posted
My point was I think your concerns are largely a non-issue. I see fast paced moments being more important in a fantasy/action series rather than one somewhat emulating reality anyway.
posted
If you consider a potential quality drop a non issue that's fine with me, but again I - with chihayafuru as a favorite show - would only be turned off on seemingly minor but important atmospherical details as such. Live action often lose a lot of luster when adapting series, but that's a different discussion.
posted
Well that just comes with the change in medium. Whether the live-action is incredible or not that doesn't change the anime (so what does quality drop have to do with anything?)
I'd rather see companies making a risk adapting something of actual entertainment value rather than stick with the generic safe option for the 99th time.
posted
Like I said, other discussion. However, if they would go all out I'm fine with it, but looking at the history of adaptations they seldom do. Adaptations often cut corners in obvious places and just makes one cringe. I surely hope it won't be a low budget film if anything...
posted
I don't think I need to tell you that Chihaafuru is a adaption.I'd rather actually see the film before I make any claims about it cutting corners but the series is award winning and popular, doesn't need much of a FX budget and has a small cast are all factors that work in this films favour.

Kimi wa Midara na Boku no Joou is pretty nice.
I read it for the 'story' ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
